No time to fly

Update!

I got a chance to fly it today. My AUW was about 5 3/4 ounces. It flew really well and considering it was a shocky type model it did tolerate the 10-12mph winds I was flying in. One thing I did notice was that a single 3mm CF rod in the middle of the wing was not enough to keep the wing from flexing. The time I was flying I did a few vertical rolls, an inside loop, outside loop, and a few other things. That was until the battery popped loose mid flight, no damage wich surprised me. So it seems to be a great design, good job EWO.
I might be getting a smaller lipo this evening or I might up it to a little 3 cell.

EWO, if it's the same Blue I got from the guy in Evansville, it's not bad... a little bowed, but useable.

Friend / Co-worker of mine firmly believes that he could start with a hammer and a bicycle and by the end of the year clear $60,000.00.

I've mentioned his thoughts to others around and they all firmly believe it as well.

It's insane. An honest person can have ALL the work he'll want in the next 3 years and get paid VERY top dollar for it. Probably 5-7 years as well.
